More Cocktails!

Cheers everyone!
The Cocktail Series show opened with a bustling reception during the May 5th Art Walk in old Charleston. There were dogs, and so many people, flowers, food and wine. A very happy time! And then there was my sister-in-law, who drove 8 1/2 hours to surprise me by walking into that gallery, and I will NEVER be over it! Love Sue Killian!

Since the May show, mostly slow news days. Mostly slow because I blew out a knee. Interesting, distracting, maddening. ~Well, that was completely unnecessary!! My focus is on being quiet and healing and so so much appreciation for the people in my life! I can still lift and ice that leg, while I still paint. The view's still beautiful, and the Goldens are still drinking!! 

Here's Ally interested in a "Nightcap"...

"Nightcap" prints are ready; "Wet Your Whistle" coming up. Available originals in this series are now in this web site's shop.

One more will make this a series of 12 paintings, my original intention. So I'll be working on "Here's Lookin' at You, Kid" and staying cool!

Seriously, eat plenty of watermelon and stay cool!

Also, I've made The Watermark Studio a new website!! Streamlined and easy, mobile-friendly even!! I will be adding more paintings in the galleries, and I'll be writing more, though this is the only blog entry at the moment, because I'm painting like mad! The Cocktail Series prints that are ready are available in the Shop now! The rest will be added as soon as they're done and printer-ready. Enjoy! ~www.watermarkstudio.com

Happy, happy Spring, everyone!
